Driven by a love for music and bolstered by captivating and sonically robust original songs, Bay Area rock quartet SunHunter began its journey in 2014.

Hailing from Mill Valley, founder and lead songwriter Tomas Dessle (guitar, lead vocals) has joined forces with local musicians Jackson Langford (guitar, vocals) Sammie Fischer (bass) and Alex Coltharp (drums) to form a tight-knit sound: always melodic, often heavy, and unmistakably catchy.
SunHunter can be found at venues, festivals, and studios around the bay, always honing their craft and fostering a deep connection with their community. Their music is evocative of psychedelic sunsets on lonely beaches or of finding oneself in the darkest, seediest alleys of San Francisco. Power anthems for hopeful but broken hearts, and of the ardor and tumult of profound life experience and hard living.

The release of their first single “Echo” and an accompanying music video in late 2016 brought SunHunter significant local exposure, backed by a diverse catalogue with the power to energize, inspire, and move, lodging itself in your head and heart.

Fueled by a drive and passion that can only be found when the right souls play music together, El Cajon is a must-see Bay Area Band. Their raw energy and infectious sound is as much the Cars and the Police as it is Arcade Fire or the Lumineers with RJ Holmberg’s lead voice so distinct that you will forever know it when you hear it. Complemented with lush harmonies from all the members, the band creates a vocal landscape unique to El Cajon. Key to the band’s sound is Mike Rennie’s incredible fiddle playing, often driving a song or adding an orchestral melody over June Holmberg’s Wurlitzer and Accordion and RJ’s telecaster. South Africa meets Texas in the rhythm section with Kyle Hermans energy and pocket on the skins and Martin Ledyard tying it all together with his artful bass playing.

THE STORY OF METALACHI…

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that wouldeventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.

One tempestuous weekend in March 1979 was not only the date of the Three Mile Island nuclear incident, but also, in Birmingham, England, the very first show by a nascent band known as The Beat. Introduced as “the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown”, the band had a sense that the next few years could well be explosive! The Beat hailed from working class, industrial Birmingham, England. When The Beat rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of social, political and musical upheaval. Into this storm came The Beat, trying to calm the waters with their simple message of love and unity set to a great dance beat.

The Beat were all about inclusion, rather than exclusion, and this showed in their personnel and their music influences. The original band consisted of Dave Wakeling on vocals and guitar, Andy Cox on guitar, David Steele on bass, and Everett Morton on drums – later additions Ranking Roger (toasting) and foundational First Wave Ska legend Saxa (saxophone) completed the outfit. The band crossed over fluidly between soul, reggae, pop and punk, and from these disparate pieces they created an infectious dance rhythm. Along with their contemporaries The Specials, The Selecter, and Madness, the band became an overnight sensation and one of the most popular and influential bands of the British Two Tone Ska movement.

By Christmas of 1979, The Beat were riding high in the UK charts with their first single, a smoking remake of the classic Smokey Robinson tune Tears of a Clown. Over the course of the next five years The Beat toured relentlessly and released three studio albums: I Just Can’t Stop It, Wh’appen, and Special Beat Service. The band toured the world, touring with such artists as David Bowie, The Police, REM, The Clash, The Talking Heads, The Pretenders, and The Specials, to name but a few. The Beat kept scoring hits with tunes that have now become so popular that it’s hard to remember a time when they didn’t exist, such as Mirror in the Bathroom, Save it for Later, I Confess, Stand Down Margaret, and their serene cover of the Andy William penned Can’t Get Used To Losing You.

Despite their huge success, The Beat continued singing about and acting on the problems we all face. They donated all the profits from their highly successful single version of Stand Down Margaret to the Committee for Nuclear Disarmament. They donated their music to causes including the anti-nuclear benefit album Life in The European Theatre, The World of Music and Dance album focusing on indigenous people’s art, and lent their voices to The Special AKA’s anthemic freedom cry Free Nelson Mandela, to name but a few.

Dave Wakeling once told me that every great band only has three really good albums. And true to form, The Beat decided to call it quits after their third album, Special Beat Service. Of course, that was not the last we would hear from the Beat boys.

After The Beat, Dave Wakeling formed General Public with his mate Roger. The band took off quickly, scoring numerous hits off the their three studio albums, including Tenderness, So Hot You’re Cool, Never You Done That, Come Again, Too Much or Nothing, and I’ll Take You There. Dave’s good looks and soulful crooning combined brilliantly with Roger’s gravelly toasting, high intensity showmanship and upful beat, and GP took the critics and fans by storm. While Dave was penning hits Stateside, Andy Cox and David Steele were putting their own band together. Andy and David placed an ad for a singer on MTv, and received an extraordinary gift, in the form of one Roland Gift. With Roland onboard, the Fine Young Cannibals was formed and right from the release of their first single Johnny Come Home, the band was a hit. Their two studio albums scored multiple hit singles, with tunes such as She Drives Me Crazy and Good Thing becoming instant classics. Not being slackers either, Saxa and Everett Morton put together their own band, International Beat, blending modern pop with traditional Jamaican rhythms to form a wonderful hybrid sound. International Beat toured around the world and released two live albums, including cameos from Dave and Roger.

Combined, all these bands scored multi-platinum record sales, sold out shows all over the world, and, most importantly, universal fan approval because they kept The Beat alive!

That ember was nursed back into a roaring flame in February 2003, when a dream came true for many Beat fans as the band reunited for a UK tour, culminating in a sold out command performance at the prestigious Royal Festival Hall! It was a wonderful night for the band and their fans.

Consummate showman that he is, Dave Wakeling has continued to keep The Beat alive and strong. How could he not? Dave continues to tour the world as The English Beat with an amazing all-star ska backing band playing all the hits of The Beat, General Public, and his new songs.

You just can’t stop The Beat!

Lyrics Born is rapper, producer, record label owner, husband, father – LB runs the gambit daily by wearing many hats. It has helped him stay grounded, unique and diversified in not only his music but also his life. With it has come as many victories as challenges, but what makes LB stand out from the crowd is his gratitude for what he has been given, his humbleness in the face of success and a relentless work-ethic that drives him to overcome all obstacles and continually come out on top.

The Crooked Stuff –

A heavy electro soul stew.
Made fresh in San Francisco.
Served hot around the galaxy
